Cambian Chesham House School is an independent, DfE-registered, co-educational day school, providing specialist education for up to 20 students, aged 10-18 years.


The School is non-denominational and has a secular ethos, but respect the cultural needs and religious beliefs of all. The School specialises in developing a culture of high expectation and achievement for all students where they are encouraged to enjoy learning, progress in their studies and exceed expectation.


Our well qualified, experienced and passionate team work together to promote our school as a community and ensure our students success both within our school and beyond. We offer a rich and varied curriculum that we are able to tailor to individual students needs and interests offering a range of both academic and vocational elements. Timetables are tailored to each individual to ensure they have the best opportunities available to them to make good progress and fulfil their potential. We continually monitor and improve our offer, embracing opportunities to further build and expand on the learning experiences of our students.


Our school supports the national curriculum building strong Literacy and Numeracy skills, underpinned by a whole school approach to emotional wellbeing, to ensure students are able to fully access the range of subjects and opportunities available to them. Students at KS3 and KS4 have access to a creative curriculum that encourages them to develop in their own way often exceeding their own expectations. Students are able to access a range of qualifications including GCSE’s, Functional Skills, BTec, Asdan and other vocational options.


We pride ourselves on our nurturing approach and the sense of community within our school, creating an environment in which students can thrive. Students remain part of our story even after they have progressed to their next steps. Our staff team build strong positive relationships based on mutual respect and trust and ensure that students are valued allowing them to thrive within our school.


We celebrate achievement both big and small as every step is as important as they strive into their futures. Personal development is a core element of our school and students are actively encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities that enrich their experiences. Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development as well as fundamental British Values are embedded across our curriculum and our school.
